Andrew Strain's (Sr.) monument.


Photo of the church corner stone where Andrew is buried.  He is buried in the Crabtree Baptist Church Cemetery, in the Crabtree Community, Haywood County, North Carolina.  It is north of Waynesville, NC.  It is relatively easy to find.  If you take I-40 going west just above Waynesville, get off the Interstate at Exit 24 and go north to the Crabtree Community to the Church and Cemetery.  It is well marked with signs directing people to the church and the roads are excellent.  There is now also re-access to I-40, which was not the case a few years ago.
